    Responsive, Sincere, Fun

    My long term boyfriend and I decided to get married with less than a week's notice. We're expecting our first child, it made financial sense as the due date got closer, so we got our license on Tuesday and then needed an officiant on Saturday. My mom was conveniently going to be in town already, hence the rush. The courthouse was booked nearly through the baby's pending arrival, so we had to go elsewhere. Reverend Dave not only answered the call but was truly outstanding in making our day special. We never really thought about getting married, but with his help our wedding was the most special wedding for us. It was quick and simple, full of laughs and love. He brought his own energy to the day, but also fed off ours making the day feel personalized and not just a formality we had to go through. I cannot say enough good things! My mom handled most of the logistical details, but due to the speed of the wedding and COVID we were unable to have anyone there. (This was preferred by us, but still kind of strange on the day of.) Reverend Dave not only set up and recorded Zoom for us so we could invite some family, but he also included a group of people in the park who were there for a proposal. Strangers though they were, it felt special to have some people there to give their blessing and cheer for us when we sealed the deal. We're so glad that went with Reverend Dave over the courthouse! Still a quick and simple wedding, the way we wanted, but one that was actual pretty magical and personal to us. 15/10 would recommend! He was outstanding.

    The Wedding Rev's reply:

    Shana, you're so sweet! I had such a blast with you, Nuru, and your mom. You two were so cute and how excited you were to get married. You make my job so much fun and worth it! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your big day.

    Amazing Reverend!!

    We hired Reverend Dave for our wedding this summer. We chose him because of his humor during ceremonies. All of our guests loved him and came up to us after to discuss how it was one of the best weddings they have been too and how entertaining our Reverend was! Reverend Dave, made the ceremony so personal to us and included our “how we met” story along with personalized vows and things that we love about each other. He also helped out during pictures with making sure we had everything we needed, making the little kids smile, and helping get my grandparents situated. He went above and beyond for us! I could not be more happy with choosing him and was beyond thrilled with the day!!

    The Wedding Rev's reply:

    Kailey & Bill, I'm glad you had so much fun. I know I did! It was great getting to know you and your families and friends! Thanks for the awesome review. Maybe I'll see you around town sometime.
